Elderly woman beaten at her home with a walking cane
HARDIN COUNTY - A 78-year old Hardin County woman who was found beaten in her home is recovering at Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont.
On Sunday morning, deputies responded to a call on Rusty Eddings Road and found Ruby Cravey. Investigators say 23-year-old Jessica Scates of Silsbee attacked the Cravey, hitting her several times with a walking cane.
Investigators said Scates, the granddaughter of a former Hardin County constable, knocked on Cravey's door and told her she needed to use the phone for a ride and Cravey allowed Scates to spend the night. Investigators said deputies found Carvey Sunday morning beaten with her own cane and Scates was nowhere to be found.
The Hardin county sheriff's department has issued an arrest warrant for Scates, charging her with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Cravey had surgery Sunday for her injuries.
